My Favorite NYC Fabric & Trim Stores
M & J Trimming
1008 Sixth Avenue
Between 37th & 38th Sts
This place is true eye candy for the sewer/crafter. You won’t the best prices in the garment district, but you will find a huge, well organized selection.
251 West 39th Street
Great selection of trims at great prices. Also carries some patterns and yarn.
225 W 37th St, 3rd floor
By far my favorite fabric store in NYC. Wonderful selection, helpful staff and the prices aren’t bad (but they’re not rock bottom either).
525 7th Avenue (corner of 38th street)
Not cheap but it is professional, organized and carries gorgeous fabrics
Tinsel Trading Co
1 West 37th Street
37th street between 5th & 6th Ave
Gorgeous selection of vintage and new trims, millinery flowers & all displayed so beautifully, you may never want to leave.
67 West 38th Street
Gorgeous ribbon to be found under the dusty mess. But I kind of like that.
Jem Fabric Warehouse
This place is well worth the trip down to Chinatown if you want a true NYC fabric jobber experience and a good deal. It is jammed packed with all sorts of unorganized fabrics and trims. And the prices? Great (and usually negotiable). Bring cash.
But really, between 34th street and 42nd street and 9th avenue and 7th avenue is the garment district. Take an afternoon to wander and you’ll find all sorts of wonderful little jobbers and some great deals on beautiful and unique fabric and trim.
